Giron® Arnis Escrima / Bahala Na® Martial Arts is a Filipino/American martial art of self defense created by Grand Master Emeritus Leo M Giron, an original “bladed warrior” and a true WWII Hero. The Giron® System is a proven fighting system based on edged weapon combatives. The Giron® System is composed of 20 styles including sword, stick, knife and empty hand techniques applicable to many aspects of survival for modern life. Our wish is to guide students through the essential elements of this effective and combat proven system and to offer insight into the rich Filipino/ American culture and history that was given to us by GME Giron and the now Grand Master, Tony Somera of Stockton California. Authorized training in Giron® Arnis Escrima / Bahala Na® Martial Arts will be helpful to anyone interested in preserving their precious life, and the lives of others. It is a rewarding martial art providing the benefit of physical and mental conditioning, self defense strategies and insight into modern warrior culture. As GME Leo was fond of saying, “May you find the three principal tenets of life applicable in the martial art venture. These tenets are WISDOM, STRENGTH and BEAUTY”
